Pours thick black with one finger, dark tan head. Aroma is molasses, roast and some cocoa. Taste is dark chocolate and brown sugar, warming to heavy roast, light coffee and a building hop backbone. Finish is a mix of hops and roast. A good stout. darb85 (337) - Canton, Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Smells like creme. A bit sweet. Decent though. Would drink again. A little thin. BlindGuardianco (90) - - NOV 26, 2015

Poured into a snifter.
3.5 A: Black color. One finger of light brown frothy/creamy head. Retention is lacking and just a wisp or two of lacing are left.
4.0 S: Roasted malts and chocolate up front. Oats are powerful in this and add their trademark oat aroma. Complex layers of caramel and molasses. Fairly simple, but very nice.
4.0 T: Taste is just as good. Roasted malts, semisweet chocolate, and oats are the strongest with nearly as much caramel and molasses.
4.25 M: Heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasantly creamy and super smooth.
4.0 D: Very tasty beer. Good for a Friday night.

Bottle from cellar that’s been aging over three years. Sweet aroma. Is there a bit of fruit? Cedar, oat and nut, chocolate, barley, roasted malts. Diverse character. Flavor is leaning heavily towards sweet then roasted then bitter then sweet again. Interesting. Very good though and alcohol is very well disguised. Smooth and creamy. Medium body. rouhlas (5393) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JUL 3, 2015
650ml bottle. Black color with beige brown head. Roasted malty aroma, chocolate, some coffee, caramel, light bready, vanilla. Sweet and bitter taste. Full silky creamy body with soft carbonation. italarican (1548) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2015
2.5 year old bomber split with Jenny while we watched those episodes of Castle where they resolve the 3XK saga. Oily, moderately thick black pour, medium off white head. Aroma is subtly earthy but massively sweet dark chocolate with burnt nuts. Flavor is surprisingly ashy to start, moving on to sweet n’ luscious dark chocolate syrup, and finishing with toast and roasted nuts. Oily and velvety body, even if not thick. Roasted nuts and earthy chocolate lingers for miles. Quite nice! Travlr (30304) - No fixed abode, South Dakota, USA - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle. Dark opaque brown color, almost black, thick beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, burnt espresso. Taste has rich cocoa, coffee, licorice. Very nice.
